7:04 am
need to use gps technology when they land. good morning, alex. >> reporter: well, good morning. since the crash of asiana flight. the faa has noticed an increase in a boarded landing by foreign carriers during what are called visual approaches, which is really what prompted this change. the faa is now urging the foreign pilots to use a gps whenever they touch down. 28 right is where they killed two people. the pilots were cleared for a visual approach when their boeing 777 came in low clipping the end of the run. normally on a clear day, pilots coming in here do a visual approach, they don't rely on their cockpit instruments, but the concern is that some foreign pilots aren't skilled enough at manual landings. that's why the faa last week made this move, asking all foreign pilots to use a gps-
7:05 am
based instrument. now, some passengers say no matter the pilot's ability to manually land the aircraft, automated systems can always help. >> it could be true, but i think that it is just the fact that the automated systems work so well that i think they should be utilized. across the board. >> reporter: now the faa says this is a temporary change and it was prompted in part because the instrument system known as the glide slope indicator is out of service here at sfo and has been out of service since june. that system helps pilots to land here at the airport. now, the glide slope is not scheduled to come back online until late august. until that time, the faa will continue to ask foreign carriers to do automated landings, using the gps system. live this morning at sfo, alex savage, ktvu channel 2 news. police in san jose are looking for whoever opened fire

8:03 am
clipped the end of the runway. normally on a clear day, pilots coming into sfo would do such a visual approach, not relying on their cockpit instruments. but there's a concern that some foreign pilots aren't skilled enough at manual landings, relying too heavily on the automated systems. the faa is now asking all those foreign carriers to use the gps- based instrument known as the r- nav. some passengers we talked to, they believe it's a good move. >> there's a lot of things going on and the automated systems, they usually pick up on everything. >> reporter: and they also instituted this change in protocol because of the instrument system known as the glide slope indicator helping pilots to land has been out of
